Other / How to prevent a specific device auto-mounting?
« Last post by BDH on Today at 03:04:21 AM »
I have a battery operated pocket modem model ZTE MF910.
It is branded Telstra (an Australian telco, also Aussie for “expensive telco”).
It has a partition containing some read-only Telstra files.
I am not using Telstra with this device, so I definitely do not need the files, but they refuse to be deleted.
Using Linux Lite 3.8 the partition constantly auto-mounts with this address:   /media/linuxlite/Telstra Wi-Fi/
Sometimes not for ten minutes, but frequently every few seconds (23 times while typing this message!).
There appears to be no pattern, although it does seem to happen more often when I start shouting abuse at the computer!
How do I stop this?  Please?
New-ish to Linux, so step-by-step instructions would be appreciated.

Many thanks
BDH

Video Cards / screen flicker - nvidia
« Last post by mohaa951 on July 17, 2018, 05:31:42 PM »
Hi all. I'm new to the forms and fairly new to using Linux. I have Lite installed on an older laptop, running Nvidia graphics and I get a bad/unusable flicker when I open graphic intense applications (ie game), or even certain browsers (Vivaldi).. In any browser, google maps will also trigger this flicker.
 I've tried the workarounds I've seen such as using CompizConfig's workaround  "Force full screen redraws (buffer swap) on repaint" but no luck..
I've tried all three of the drivers shown in the screenshot but same issue.

Start up and Shutdown / Re: boot times

Perfect.

Thank you very much, especially for the commands you posted.

Now the boot-time takes 32 seconds only.
Since I have no SSD but old fashioned HDD, I consider this as very fast according to the other light distros I am used to.

Thanks to the Linux Lite team for the distro.
I like very much what I see.

Linux Lite 4.0 needs about 70 seconds to boot  (from grub-entry to login-screen).
How can I accelerate it ?

As you can see from your terminal output, your vbox.service is taking up a huge amount of boot-time.
Do you need virtual machines to run on your PC? If you don't then delete vbox.service. This has come up a few times already,
but here is the solution - it should speed up things very significantly for you:

Code: [Select]
sudo apt purge virtualbox*
sudo systemctl stop vboxadd.service
sudo systemctl stop vboxadd-service.service
sudo systemctl disable vboxadd.service
sudo systemctl disable vboxadd-service.service

Other distros on my PC need about 25 to 32 seconds.
antix 25 seconds,  linux-mint19xfce 32 seconds,  peppermint9 32 seconds.

end of systemd log (the first second is ok, therefore I don't post it):

On Topic / Re: need to run windows exe file. Play on linux won't do it
« Last post by newtusmaximus on July 17, 2018, 05:36:58 AM »
Thank you.  It is a commercial exe file not on the Wine checked list - installer for a dashboard,  Tried running wine as XP  but the laptop is running 64bit LL.  Will try again. Under time constraints, so probably will have to bite the bullet and install windows7 on this machine temporarily  and look to see whether I can get it to run on wine later.  Thanks again

@newtusmaximus  -  Have you tried different compatability modes in wine config? Do you get any wine error messages indicating dll problems? You may have seen options to override built in dlls with windows dlls. Is the exe a commercial program which may be listed in the Wine compatability database? Not all windows programs can be persuaded to run with wine. You *may* find a solution from these pointers.

Security & Bug Fixes / Re: Possible trojan in updating in VirtualBox
« Last post by hkn on July 16, 2018, 05:00:47 PM »
No, I dont play any games; the AV just picked it up when Lite was updating and the  AV blocked the FlashPlayer plugin update. I think the rest of the updates was correct.
